Zojirushi NP-NVC10 Induction Heating 5-1/2-Cup (Uncooked) Pressure Rice Cooker and Warmer

NP-NVC10
 

Featuring Advanced fuzzy logic technology with AI (Artificial Intelligence) "learns" and adjusts the cooking cycle  and automatically select from 3 pressure settings to get perfect results every time. The NP-NVC10 has a superior induction heating technology, multiple cooking functions, an interchangeable melody and beep signal to indicate the end of the cooking cycle, automatic keep warm, and a detachable stainless-steel inner lid.

Platinum Infused Nonstick Inner Cooking Pan

Platinum coating makes the water to have more alkaline which can penetrate proteins of the surface of each rice grain. The more water that can react with the starch inside the rice grain can cause greater gelatinization and enhance the natural sweetness of the rice. 

Platinum coating also twice as durable against scratches and peeling.

Umami Setting

Umami is considered the 5th flavor, along with sweet, salty, sour and bitter. It is also described as savoriness, and comes from the Japanese word meaning "good flavor" or "deliciousness".By prolonging the soaking before cooking, the Umami Setting of the NP-NVC gives the rice more time to release its internal sugars into the water. Once cooking begins, these dissolved sugars reattach themselves to the outer surface of the rice, making the rice taste sweeter when cooked. The Umami Setting also extends the steaming time at the end of the cooking cycle.


Steam-Reduce Setting:

By reducing the amount of steam to 50% of the Regular Setting. This will help protect surrounding furniture and cabinets when cooking under low cabinets or in tight spaces. You can’t combine this Steam-Reduce Setting with other settings except for Rinse-Free setting. Rice texture may be firmer and harder than regular setting. 

Scorched Setting:

The Scorch Setting lightly toasts the bottom of the rice to a crispy golden brown, creating a delicious snack that is also a component of many regional dishes. The Scorch Setting is a special setting that cannot be used together with any other settings and rice cooked using the Scorch Setting should be consumed immediately to enjoy while it is most delicious.

Automatic Keep Warm:

The rice cooker automatically switches to Regular Keep Warm when cooking completes. It will keep cooked rice at the optimal serving temperature for up to 12 hours.

Extended Keep Warm:

Keeps cooked rice warm at a lower temperature than Regular Keep Warm to minimize drying and yellowing of rice. It is ideal to switch to Extended Keep Warm when keeping rice warm for a longer period of time.

Reheat Function:

Taking about 5-8 minutes, it can be used to reheat rice kept warm under Regular or Extended Keep Warm to bring the temperature closer to immediately after cooking.

Keep Warm Monitor

The lid sensor detects how many times the lid has been opened and for how long, and calculates the amount of rice left inside the inner cooking pan. The rice cooker then calculates how much heat is needed to keep the rice at the ideal keep warm temperature. The keep warm monitor alerts you by beeping four times, at 10, 40 or 70 minutes after cooking completes if the lid has not been opened, to encourage you to fluff the rice to release excessive moisture. The rice cooker will also beep four times if the lid is left open for over 5 minutes to remind you to close the lid. If unclosed, the rice cooker will beep every 3 minutes thereafter for up to 3 times. Both beeps will not sound if the rice cooker is set to "Silent" mode.

Make Every Rice Type Imaginable

Zojirushi NP-NVC10
 
Brown Rice

This is a menu setting designed to cook delicious brown rice. In order to cook hard rice bran and the rice inside, preheating time is extended for better absorption of water, and is cooked at a lower temperature to allow the rice to cook longer without becoming mushy.

Sushi Rice

Because sushi rice will be processed after it's cooked, it's easier to handle when it is a little firmer. This menu setting is very similar to regular white rice, but uses less water (adjusted by the water fill lines) for a firm finish.

Mixed Rice

Mixed rice is rice cooked with additional ingredients and seasonings. This setting extends preheating for better absorption of seasoning. Also, the cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to avoid ingredients from boiling over.

Porridge

Instead of cooking rice in larger amounts of water and risk making it sloppy, use the porridge setting to cook fluffy porridge. Cooking temperature is slightly lower than regular white rice, to be cooked longer for soft texture.

GABA Brown Rice

A newly discovered way of cooking brown rice to "activate" it and increase natural occurring gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an amino acid in brown rice believed to have health giving properties such as lowering blood pressure, improving kidney function and relieving stress. The brown rice is "activated" by soaking it at 104 degrees F for 2 hours before the actual cooking begins.

About AI Fuzzy Logic Technology

The AI (Artificial Intelligence) allows the rice cooker to "learn" from past cooking experiences and adjust the cooking "flow" to cook ideal rice. NP-NVC10 cooks rice to the same consistency in summer or winter, when water and room temperatures may be drastically different. With AI technology, the rice cooker remembers the capacity you cook most often, and selects the ideal cooking "flow" from the very first stage of the cooking process. Basically, the microchip does all the thinking for you to adjust cooking times and temperatures, sets the precise amount of pre-soaking time of the raw grains, and the time for the final "wait" period during steaming.

What is Induction Heating (IH)

Induction Heating took rice cooking to another level by literally introducing another dimension to the heating process. Where the heating element would normally be located at the bottom of the cooker, IH transforms the entire inner cooking pan into a heat conductor, allowing for higher, more precise and more uniform cooking temperatures.

IH Pressure System

Pressure cooking is a method of cooking in a sealed vessel that does not permit air or liquids to escape below a preset pressure resulting in even higher temperatures. Rice cooked with pressure has been found to stay soft for longer periods of time when compared to regular cooked rice. As pressure builds inside while the rice cooks, the boiling point of the water increases beyond the normal 212 degrees F. Once the water is allowed to boil, it cannot be heated further; but inside a sealed environment under pressure, higher temperatures can be reached, which penetrates everything in the cooker from the surface of the food to its center.
